The world of storm chasing has been changed forever. On Tuesday morning, star of the hit Discovery Channel series, Joel Taylor, was found unresponsive in his cabin on a Royal Caribbean cruise ship. Taylor will be missed dearly by many fans and myself.
His death, according to law enforcement officials and anecdotal evidence from other passengers, appears to have been a result of an overdose after Taylor consumed controlled substances recreationally.
In the most heartwarming of acts, Taylor’s TornadoVideos.Net (TVN) co-star Reed Timmer has been effectually eulogizing Taylor on his twitter. His words and pictures attest to his character, impact, and legacy much more than mine, and have brought compassion and love in a sad time for us all.
